The characters rely on their knowledge of other zombie films--Night of the Living Dead is repeatedly and explicitly referenced--to survive, and express annoyance when the zombies don't follow the "rules".
No one likes a party pooper except other party poopers, and this movie is all about partying.
Though it's touted as a comedy, I find it decidedly lacking in worthwhile humour as it barely goes beyond explicitly riffing on other zombie movies or even in having its outlandish characters do everything from graveyard stripteases to theatrical displays of shock over the zombies.
